    I've asked questions about this before but once again, I've ended up getting confused.

    To get in to what I've almost decided to be my first choice uni I need BBC which is 280 UCAS points. I know when they ask for specific grades, they want specific grades but I'm currently not on track for BBC.

    Instead, I'm on track for ACC or maybe even A*CC depending how well I do in my ICT coursework. That's 280 points or 300 points respectively.

    Will this be enough or do I need to resit to push one of the Cs up to Bs?

    Cheers!

    Unless disaster strikes, it's pretty certain that I'm going to get ACC - with the A walked as I can get a U in my coursework and still manage it.

    So I need to make that ABC to meet their requirement?

    Hi,

    For my course they require 300 UCAS points and a B in a natural science,

    Would mathematics count as a natural science, and for my AS that I dropped I gained a C in, does this lower the point boundary to 260?

    Many thanks.

    Depends on the specifics of the offer

    They will have a list of what counts as a Natural Science (I would expect Mathematics to be on it)

    Hi Josh,

    It would be useful for you to contact the university to find this out directly from them, however if they have specified grades then you need to acheive hthose grades.

    The UCAS points system allows the flexibility of doing really well in one area, which can compensate a slightly poorer performance in another. Unfortunately, if a university wants you to acheive a certain standard in certain areas, you need to be able to acheive that.

    As I previously mentioned, it is worth contacting the university to clarify this before presuming that you can just make up the 280 UCAS points in any way.

    I hope this helps.
